Delivery is a micro web-app that allows you to quickly show static previews of your web-design work to your clients in the browser, just by simply uploading a few files to your web server.
- Upload a folder to your FTP server. We'll call ours "projects"
- At the root of the "projects" directory, upload the index.php and .htaccess files
- Upload a folder for a single project, containing your JPG or PNG formatted images. We'll call ours "black-mesa".
- This folder (and any others you'd like to "deliver") should also be at the root of the "projects" directory
- Delivery will list images in the navigation alphabetically. Control the order by adding numbers to the file name, like "01 - home.jpg", "02 - about us.jpg", etc.
- Spaces in file names are ok
- Navigate to "http://YourFtpServer.com/projects/black-mesa"
When clients see your work in an actual browser, even if it is a static mock-up, they seem to be able to imagine better how the actual page will work in a browser. From personal experience, I have noticed they even try to click the preview images when they see their first "Delivery". Because they are able to relate better, they provide more constructive feedback -- contrary to delivering static images via e-mail or, I can't believe I'm typing this, in print.
Known issues / Nitpicking
- Analyze $cur_preview vs. $current_preview
- Fix filesystem accessibility. Directories are currently unavailable.
- Clean up $p_fullnames, $p_filenames into array.
- Not a fan of the "/_" in the URL. If anyone has a fix, I'll gladly hear it.
